NO QUESTIONS ASKED



Bet U didn't think about
why you're with
U-NO-HOO
today
and betcha didn't reflect on why
you're even with
U-NO-HOO
yesterday either
maybe U thought about it
way back when for a bit
but hey U got some
body
and so U do it by rote
cuz some
body
is better than no
body
right?

maybe

me
I don't need no
body
just to have some
body
around

but if I ever do
I'll dig up the one
that's in the back yard

  3. Truth is, we all prostitute ourselves in one way or another ... work or play ... for money or for free ... in sickness or in health ... til death do us part. Love, cat.

  7. Gritty and perhaps a tad bitter. No, maybe more than a tad. Love that dark humor.

  8. I'm guessing you haven't invited your former English teachers to come read your work... or are they the ones in the backyard? :)

    Um, I've been doing some online dating lately and I'm here to tell you that with the guys I've been meeting, I'll gladly do without some body until I find just the right "body." But not that one in the back yard...shudder!

    1. Yeah...it takes all kinds, and you will meet all of 'em playing that game...more along the lines of the bad and the ugly rather than the good--lol

  18. Made me laugh and then think of the Billy Connolly joke, about the wife buried in the back yard, on his first TV appearance with Parkinson in the UK. Made him a star.
